AmandaWilhiteee's curator insight, October 24, 2014 9:44 AM

I wanted to scoop an article about Genetically Modified foods, This was the perfect article. This article has definitely changed my perspective on Genetically Modified foods. Before I read this article, I was okay with eating GM food because I knew how much of it is modified and how little wasn't, but now I am scared to eat foods that have been genetically modified.

GMO’s or genetically modified food is when foods are produced and then taken any to be experimented on. GMO’s are dangerous and can harm the environment around us. Taking freshly produced food and then ‘poisoning’ it is cruel, it also post a threat to our economy. If we, throughout the years, keep doing this to our food eventually we will not be able to produce fresh crops in our farms today. It would be risky to many people in America today to trust GMO’s since it can harm them and the economy.
